It’s that time again – another installment of The Weekly Rig from CHAUVET Professional and Trusst! This week’s installment is called Quatuor Erro, which translates to Four Hallways in Latin. Now you’re learning Latin!
Particular attention was paid to this week’s design with respect to repetition – an important design element that is often overlooked is the power of repetition and symmetry in your lighting and truss designs. This brings up another very important aspect of design – do you want even numbers of fixtures in a row or odd numbers? Each gives you different looks, and the even vs. odd debate also lends itself to different combinations of aerial and wash looks. Even numbers of fixtures lends itself to interesting center splits in a design, especially when fanning, and the odd numbered fanned splits will require you with a beam right in the center of your view. Keep in mind this isn’t a bad thing at all; it’s just a different kind of aerial look!
This week’s installment of The Weekly Rig features the bright and powerful Legend 330 SR Spot and the eye-popping Nexus 4×4 LED panels, with the COLORado Batten 144 Tour being utilized for architectural blasts. All of the four lighting positions are made from Trusst trussing, all self-standing, and self-supporting! The Trusst “doorways” are made from 2m straight sections with 90° corners creating the top of the doorway. COLORdash Par Quad 7 LED wash fixtures are used for truss toning – with truss used as scenic elements, it’s best to have a bright fixture lighting your structure up!
